Rajan's hand in land deals comes to light Friday, May 4, 2001

SURAT: Among other things, is the Chhota Rajan group involved in settling land disputes in Gujarat? So would it seem from the confessions of Chhota Rajan's aide O P Singh, who is now being interrogated in Surat.

Singh told the police that a top businessman, who is also into exports, was forced by the gang to pay Rs 75 lakhs to settle a land dispute last year. The businessman was having problems in acquiring a big chunk of land on the Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar highway. The title was not clear and the owner wanted to milch the businessman after the deal was nearly through.

Singh told the police that the owner engaged the services of the Chhota Rajan gang and Singh, who handled land deals, met the two sides to strike a settlement. The businessman was forced to shell out an unreasonably big amount to complete the deal.

Singh claimed he got Rs 75 lakhs from the businessman out of which half was paid to the land owner. Of the remaining Rs 37.5 lakh one half went to Chhota Rajan and the other half ie Rs 19 lakh, was split between Singh and other gang members.

When contacted, DIG (operations) of the anti-terrorist squad Vipul Vijoy, who interrogated O P Singh, admitted that the gang had a hand in a land dispute settlement in Ahmedabad, but refused to divulge further details.

Gujarat quake survivors to write protest letters in blood Friday, May 4, 2001

AHMEDABAD - Angry quake survivors in Gujarat said on Thursday they planned to write letters in blood to the president and prime minister to protest against what they called the government's "tardy" relief efforts.

The protest is spearheaded by Group 2001, an association of quake survivors from Anjar, one of the four worst-hit towns in January's massive earthquake that killed more than 30,000 people.

"We plan to write 2001 letters in blood and convey the distress and discontent over the tardy and inadequate rehabilitation initiatives so far undertaken by the authorities," Shyam Sunder, a member of the group, told Reuters.

"Rehabilitation work in Kutch has so far been snail-paced and lacklustre," he added.

He said the participants would address their letters to Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee and President K.R. Narayanan.

Government officials denied that relief efforts for quake survivors were slow. "Complaints of this nature are bound to be there as the administration is dealing with a mammoth task," said a senior government official.

The Gujarat government has said it will reconstruct the four worst-affected towns at an estimated cost of 12.79 billion rupees over the next two years.
